Why you should be willing to fail.

As an entrepreneur, you have to be automatically inclined to take some measure of risk or else you’d be content working a 9 to 5 without any problem. The issue is, many people might be willing to take one scary step toward starting a business but then they suddenly get scared to keep progressing and taking risks to grow their business. Don’t fall into that same trap! On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott as he explains why you should be willing to fail if you have any hope of building a thriving ecommerce business.

Difficulty and challenges will come, will you rise to the occasion?

What is your attitude toward setbacks and challenges? Do you see them as signs from the universe that you are headed down the wrong path? Or do you see them as temporary and expected speed bumps on your journey? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott as he explains why failure only occurs when you give up. This simple mindset shift can make all the difference. Don’t throw up your hands in despair when you make a mistake or struggle through a hard time, use it as a moment to learn from! Make sure to listen to this episode as Scott explains how this approach has played out in his own journey.

Is it better to sell a product others are selling or create your own?

What is the best way to get started with an ecommerce business? Should you get started with a hot product that lots of sellers are bringing to market with the hope that you’ll be able to market it better? Or should you focus on creating a product from scratch and build a brand and audience around that product? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott as he gives his take on the best way to get started. While it seems like the harder path to go down, Scott stresses the value of building a product and brand from scratch. This way you won’t have to worry about a ton of competition out of nowhere and end up with products that you can’t sell. To hear more about Scott’s take on this important topic, make sure to listen to this episode!
